're leaving in new jersey, out your door or new york city area, southern connecticut, some showers are about to move through. they're already coming in pretty good now, moving on interstate 78 and 80 across new jersey and into the greater new york city area. they'll be in and out quickly by 8:00 a.m. they should be overwith. it's little area of showers. you can see it right here. southern hudson valley to just north of philadelphia. that's about it. those will quickly blow through long island and also through connecticut as we go throughout the early morning. after that, the warm front goes through and will warm up in a hurry. a pool of cold air moved in overnight over new england. hartford at 32. it's 17 degrees warmer right now in new york. but that cold air that just temporarily settled in overnight will be pushed out in a hurry during the day to day. all the warm air to the south will win out. temperatures are going to rise rapidly. should head up to 58 today in hartford after starting out in 32. that is pretty incredible, almost a 30 degree temperature rise during the daylight hours. 73
of connecticut and other states too are failing to protect the children from guns. gregg: major headlines in the fight over the fiscal cliff as the number two republican in the senate moments ago said there could potentially be a bill ready for the floor, but after lawmakers turned down several different plans to avoid potential tax hikes for every american what do we know about this possible bill? not much, and may be more importantly if it passes, what does it mean for your wallet on january 1st, that is if we fall off the cliff. matt mccall is president of penn financial group llc. the irs is today notifying employers on how much they will have to withhold from their employees' checks. let's go through each and every one of these tax increases if there is no deal, and we dive off the cliff. let's begin with the first one. marginal income tax rates ric rice for nearly everybody in america. >> over 90% of americans will be hit with higher taxes, and everybody talks about the wealthy getting hit the hardest. what i find fascinating is two-thirds of americans that make less than $20,000 a
of massachusetts, connecticut and the state of rhode island could look at over six inches of snow with areas possibly seeing a foot of snow. so again the chance of seeing more snow from this next storm system is increasing here. it is pulling in a lot of moisture from the gulf of mexico. that is one of the reasons why we think we could see a little more than originally anticipated. right now it is producing snow across areas in chicago, northern parts of the state of indiana that into michigan. on the southern end of the storm system we have showers and thunderstorms in louisiana, mississippi and tennessee. eventually both of these areas will be coming together and moving towards the northeast. i do quickly want to point out between these areas we're actually seeing freezing rain falling early this morning across places in arkansas and northern texas. please drive carefully out there. that is outside the city of memphis as well. western portions of state of tennessee dealing with possible icing on the roadways. otherwise a number of winter weather advisories issued for the state of new jerse
york city, for instance. >> dave: new jersey, connecticut. >> clayton: you're not living the dream. >> juliet: it's sort of subjective. well, actually not subjective you can look exactly at what people live here for 250 or people in san francisco, another expensive city, it doesn't go that long, didn't go that far. >> dave: the bottom line, it appears they've moved the goal post and it may be around the $400,000 mark and that may be the new 250 if you will. may be where ne get the deal done. and upwards towards the 500 mark, but here are two congressmen on perhaps moving this up. >> the $400,000 level seems to me to be about right, that represents about the top 1% of the income earners, the people who got 93% of the income growth our last year and that seems to be enough, but i think there's some flexibility there. >> it's about making sure that we can live within our means and address the real problem and that's spending. i kind of feel like i'm a lifeguard and we've got to save as many people from drowning in higher taxes as we can. >> clayton: that seems to be the new threshold
and 30s. your windchill, though, is down in the lower 20s. up into connecticut, although not much wind in new york city right now. we are going to see some showers start to work in a little later on today, nothing too heavy, but they'll last through the night and into the start of the weekend. saturday will start off a little bit damp, but it should start to clear up a little bit later saturday afternoon. joe and mika? >> all right. thank you so much, dylan. now it is time for sports. >>> peyton manning and the broncos looking for their eighth straight win last night against the raiders. first quarter in oakland, peyton manning drops back and connects with joel dreessen for the score. broncos take an early 7-0 lead. raiders down by nine in the third quarter. carson palmer trying to convert on third down, but -- >> poor carson. >> -- von miller comes around the edge and forces the fumble. broncos recover at the 2 yard line, and two plays later, knowshon moreno punches it in from a yard out to extend the broncos' lead. denver wins its eighth straight by a final of 26-13 with a 10-3 recor
a casino trip to connecticut. he says that he was cut off by a tractor-trailer rig. prosecutors charged him with being so recklessly sleep deprived that it was as if he was drunk. he faces 15 counts of manslaughter among other charges. the jury's have is being read right now but in the situation it is always confusing whether or not these are guilty or not guilty verdicts. we're going to keep an eye on it. when we find out precisely what happens we will bring you the verdicts but he faces 15 years in prison 1/4 million dollars fine if he is convicted on all 15 manslaughter counts of the those charges being read in court right now. heather: right now the brutal civil war raging in syria, now you know inching closer to the capital of damascus. new video shows plumes of smoke rising over the skyline. rebel fighters are turning their attention to damascus airport as they try to choke off supplies for the assad regime. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is following all of this from the pentagon. good morning. >> reporter: good morning heather. the pent gone continues actively plan
, and then you can see, we have four to six inch bes for much of new york state as well as into connecticut and new york. not necessarily new york city getting as hard-hit with this storm. several inches expected. what's fastcinating when talkin about a nor'easter system, as it develops off the coast, depending where the low pressure is centered, that will determine how much snow cities like boston and providence get. but the latest computer modelling are saying we could see six inches or more for the boston area. that's why a winter storm warning is now in place. so the snow will begin later on today and continue through the night, and it may be something you have to plow or shovel out by the time we get to tomorrow morning. we'll be watching this very closely. you can see that the winter weather advisory is a little less for the cape, because you have that ocean moisture and ocean temperatures a little bit milder and that influences whether you get snow or rain. again, this looks like a powerful storm. here's the computer model showing we could see over a foot of snow in parts of massachu
in new york and new jersey plus connecticut have asked for more than $80 billion. lawmakers in states hit hard by the storm are calling for an emergency spending bill but some republicans are demanding spending cuts to offset the extra disaster relief. and toys are on the way for many kids in the hardest storm areas. it's part of a special delivery from the u.s. navy's blue angels. you probably know them from their aerial stunts. but this time of year they load up the giant super plane, a support plane of sorts, known as fat albert with gifts for the annual toys for tots program. this year the blue angels stopped in alabama after tornadoes leveled homes and businesses across the state. this year the toys are head to the northeast coast. jonathan serrie rode along today. is he live on the jersey shore. aside from the humanitarian goal this is certainly pretty good p.r. for them. >> yeah, it really is the blue angels everyone knows them as the very public face of the navy and marines when it comes to their air baltic show. but also this humanitarian operation has made a very big impression
, connecticut and in new york, and they're in california and illinois. a lot of places where democrats govern, because they have the most deductions at the federal level. >> well, as we've explained many times, the amount of money he can get from his tax rates on the rich, even if he got his buffet tax, it does nothing to solve the deficit problem. so, he knows eventually taxes are going to have to hit the middle class. a number of ways to do that, one is a vat tax, a carbon tax on energy and another is raising income rates on everyone, and if he can blame that on republicans, this might be the way to get na started. >> i'm going to have to disagree on the politics of what james says, dan. i think the president can't let that alternative minimum tax hit because the pressure from his own party and from senators up for reelection in 2014, the democrats, would be enormous. >> i kind of agree, james, i think that would be an achilles heel for the democrats, the third rail as we say, they don't want to go, i agree with you, paul, that the game here is to hang this on the republicans, and then pitc
passed since a house fire shattered the life of a mother in connecticut. it killed her three daughters, and both of her parents, on christmas day. now the woman says it was a real challenge finding the strength to move on with her life. the mom told a local newspaper she and a friend were wrapping presents. the friend cleaned ashes that had blown out of a small fireplace and threw them in the garbage bin before she went to sleep. one hour later, the woman woke up choking, flames and smoke engulfed the house. firefighters pulled her out but they could not save her children or her parents in time. the mother said she somehow made it through the funeral services but eventually she broke down. she said that her hair turned gray and fell out in clumps and they threaded to kill herself by overdosing on pills. this year another friend in arkansas agreed to take her in as long as she did not commit suicide. now the mom says support from friends and memories of her children have kept her going. she arranged a trip to thailand for this christmas so she could donate her daughter's toys to an orph

, connecticut. attorney general in arizona, tom horn, offering a proposal that would allow a school principal or another staff member to be trained to use a firearm. his plan would require a change in state law. currently allows only police officers to carry firearms on school grounds. >> we would provide the training in marksmanship, in judgment. there would be simulations, to be sure they're well-trained to handle an emergency. and then they would be able to have a gun at school, locked up in a very secure place. >> i don't want anymore firearms in the school whether it is locked in a safe or trained person to me, in my personal opinion would be safer because they can't be everywhere. >> a normal person not used to the stress of say, a armed gunman may not be able to respond the same way. gregg: if the attorney general's proposal is approved by state lawmakers, participation would be entire tirely optional. patti ann: yet another fiscal cliff concern. the price of milk, if congress doesn't take action before new year's day the price could more than double. dominic di-natale is live in los a
of snow in some areas, especially back into ohio, pennsylvania and new york state. granby, connecticut, picked up six inches before it changed over to rain. we saw winds gusting up near hurricane-force strength in brick, new jersey. 74-mile-per-hour wind gusts. most of the eastern seaboard did see gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour. this storm is still lingering across northern new england where winter storm warnings and advisories are still in effect. heaviest of the snow, though, is where they want it, up across the ski resorts through northern new york, up into vermont, new hampshire and eventually maine as well. it's the extreme northern tier of the country that could end up with more than two feet of snow. elsewhere in new england, we'll get another foot of snow in central and northern new england. rain will wind down later today and then tomorrow as we head into friday, it looks like things will finally improve. a little chilly, but the sunshine is back. temperatures tomorrow should top out in the mid to upper 30s. so improvements, they're slow to get here, but they'll still ge
